I feel like a beached whale.

OK, so I know I’m pregnant and all, but should I really look like I have a giant beer gut when I’m only 4 months along? Baby P is only 4 inches long and weighs 3.5 ounces, so is it really necessary for my belly to start at the middle of my rib cage (no lie) and go down to my thighs? A little girl at church told me the other night, “Wow, I can’t believe your stomach is already that big. My cousin is 4 months pregnant too and your are WAY bigger than her.” Awesome. By the time it’s all said and done, I guess Christian will just have to roll me around like a massive beach ball. OK, so maybe I’m being a bit dramatic…..I’m not THAT big. But I sure don’t feel like I look preggers. Instead, I look like I have a food baby.

On a more positive note, I just spent an awesome weekend with my college friends and their families. We talked a lot, played with babies, ate good food and laughed a ton! It was so much fun. Every year I spend with them makes me more thankful for the precious bond we share. They are amazing women. Watching my sweet friends be moms was such a blessing. It put things into perspective for me….even if I gain 200 pounds, it will be worth it, because I will get to have a precious little baby to love in the end!
